The kids had an enjoyable time at the Museum. We spent a few hours exploring and playing and learning. They loved the tree house and dressing up.

If you have young children, stop here! So many rooms and things to play with. There's LOTS of touching of everything allowed, and creative play is encouraged! It's worth the $$
